Rumored mom-to-be Scarlett Johannson (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and People magazine’s newly announced 2014 “Most Beautiful” person Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave) are reportedly in talks to join the cast of the upcoming animated Disney film version of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.
New dad for the second time, Idris Elba (Thor), has already been cast in the Jon Favreau -directed project set to film later this year.
Johannson would play the voice of villain Kaa, a python who hypnotizes and eats other animals; Nyong’o would voice Rakcha, a mother wolf who adopts a young human boy named Mowgli; and the ferocious tiger Shere Khan would be voiced by Elba.
News surfaced last month that Johansson and fiance journalist Romain Dauriac are expecting although neither have confirmed the reports.
